Lagos Guber Race: Customer is king, Jimi Agbaje tells APC


The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mr Jimi Agbaje, has broken his silence about him being called “Customer Dada ni,” by All Progressive Congress faithful in the state.

Agbaje was Democratic Party, DPA candidate in 2007 election, and PDP candidate in 2014, losing on both on occasions to Babatunde Fashola and Akinwunmi Ambode respectively.

On account of the two defeats he suffered, he is being nicknamed: “Customer Dada ni” by APC supporters.

In a veiled reaction to the apparent submission of APC supporters that he is no match for the party candidate, Babajide Sanwoolu, the pharmacist turned politician, at an interactive ceremony held at Lekki area of the state on Friday said, “I am running a believable administration and I am in the race for service not for self. They are in politics for selves. They have said that I am their ‘customer’. But I want to tell them that the customer is the king and he is always right. By March 2019, the rest will be history because this election will be decided by the people of Lagos who yearn for freedom, and not by political parties.”

Speaking further, the PDP candidate hit out at the APC led-government saying it was a puppet government controlled by a godfather.

His word, “We need a governor that the buck stops on his table. I promise to be that governor. The buck will stop on my table and Lagos will go back to his glory as the future is bright,”

Unveiling his plans if elected, Agbaje said, “As governor, I promise to provide a minimum of 1000 megawatts of power. I know that Lagos needs at least 3000 megawatts but I do not want to promise more and achieve less, that is why I said I will ensure Lagos produces at least 1000 megawatts.

“I will ensure that our people have quality healthcare that is funded through insurance. We will revive public education in the state so that even the children of the poor can have good education.”
